  1. change the GSU home page appearance

    The contents on the homepage are moving too fast. The web page is not displaying the desired message in a readable way for the visitor to browse through the different contents.

    • Bottom hlf is great. The gray bar that flies up when you mouse the header image is distracting.

      Hi! A lot of this is neat and visual, but I find the gray pop-up box that appears when you mouse over the header image highly visually distracting (to the point of it being annoying) and unnecessary. Any chance that the giant gray bar there could obscure less of the image, or go away entirely? It's clear without the big gray bar that the item is clickable--the current homepage functions that way, and is lovely. Has that visual element been usability tested? Thank you!

      • Accept Visa Cards

        PantherPay should accept Visa since it is most common and the students should not pay the fee for GSU to accept money from me. It does not make since to charge the person who pays the bill the fee, it certainly doesn't happen in other businesses. And the list of accepted cards is hilarious, other than Master Card, does anybody actually have any of those others?

        • make departments searchable on the map page!

          If you're looking for a GSU department, you should be able to search for it on the map and it should lead you to the correct building that houses that department's main office.

          • provide federal loan reinstatement form on website

            Under the Forms section in Financial Aid, there is no form for loan reinstatement. As a student I used up my Hope, and now need to reinstate loan money to finish my degree. I waited 45 minutes to contact Financial Aid and the person said she would send me an attachment with the loan "change" or reinstatement form. I received the email with no attachment. Cannot get through to Financial Aid today. Loan reinstatement form not available under Forms section. Please correct this asap because as a student customer, I am cannot get the service I need from Financial Aid…

                  Clynton,

                  This is under review. We currently have options in test to produce as positive result as possible for all of the features we offer for content display. These features used to work well with long streaming ages of text, but now with the sophistication of “active” objects like tabs and sliders it is difficult to produce the printed object from that designed to produce am exceptional digital experience. An additional item to test with “print” is the moblie expectation of such function.

                  That said we will look into it and try to find a balance.

                • Make a Carousel Interval attribute for the carousel shortcode

                  This request it 2-fold:

                  -Allow site admins/editors to designate the interval between slide transitions, e.g [carousel interval= "20"] where 20 is the number of seconds between transitions.

                  -Allow site admins/editors to turn off transitions, so they do not happen automatically when the page loads, i.e. they only happen when a user clicks the arrows, e.g. [carousel interval="false"]

                  • make the 'commkit.gsu link on the GSU map the PRIMARY map, as opposed to requiring outsiders guess at clicking the icon in the top right cor

                    When a user-- including GSU students, faculty, and staff-- clicks 'map' on the GSU web page they are taken to a page that does not initially identify all of the buildings by name. It is only on enlarging the page that this happens. The 'commkit.gsu...' link has a list of building names and their relative locations more easily identifiable, and I believe it would be more useful to have that page as the initial 'campus map' url

                    • change 404 page

                      Instead of Pounce and the latest tweet on the 404 page, can you put some useful information, such as where to report a broken link, and maybe a link to some of the useful navigation hubs, like the A-Z department list? The tweet (and even Pounce) is fine, but it's not really helping users who are lost in the new pages, and we've already gotten some complaints from prospective students and parents about it. Adding a default broken link instructional paragraph before the tweet would do wonders.

                        • put a link to the W-2 somewhere people can ******* find it

                          I've spent maybe 45 minutes wandering from site to site trying to find a link to a downloadable PDF of my W-2, because I lost my paper copy. I can't find that anywhere. It's not in PAWS, it's not here (as far as I can see), it's ******* nowhere.
                          Let me give you a basic course in website design: organize your web-site according to what users will want, not by how your department is organized. Identify the resources that your users are likely to want, and put links to those resources right on the front page, even if that results…

                            It would be really nice if I could set the color for the header for the "card" style of the box shorttag. Perhaps make it identical to the h5 options, with blue, red, or grey.

                                I would love to see specific colleges and departments tagged (or even linked to) in stories to drive traffic to those sites as well. The banner and all the buckets on the homepage right now are about arts and sciences, but none of them are tagged arts and sciences or even linked to the specific department page. It's great to have stories that highlight all that we do here, but it's even better if those stories lead to traffic to our sites to further increase interest in our programs. Thanks.

                                    • View like website

                                      There should be a option in the mobile GSU site... Because it is really hard to find things in the way that everything has been organized. For instance, when I try to reserve a room in the library I'm only able to do it in the desktop version, and I don't know why. Every time I try with the mobile version, the website doesn't "accept/read" my GSU email and password.

                                      • Add field for photo attribution

                                        Particularly for banner photos, captions and descriptions are insufficient to meet the needs for some creative commons license requirements of some photographers. We have a byline field for post authors already, and it would be standard to have a second line crediting the photographer/graphic artist.
